The story of the West is a grand and unique story, but it is also a universal story. In Jerusalem and in Athens lightning struck. Socrates asked the question what is the right way for a man to live? Not an Athenian, not a Persian, not a Spartan, but a man as a man. In Jerusalem born the knowledge of a god for every human being, not a god of a city, not a god of a people, but the god for all men and all times. That light has remade the world, and that’s what we mean by western civilization.
